TL DR: This movement has gotten away from the self-improvement side of the coin. Don't wait for NoFap "superpowers". If you want to see an improvement in an area of your life (women attraction, confidence, etc), you need to work on that area specifically. Head: I've been on NoFap.com for about a year now. This place jump-started me in me self-improvement journey. However, I've noticed a significant trend on here: people are obsessed with the "superpowers" that people claim happen on longer streaks. And in my opinion, waiting for a miracle is a horrible mindset to have. Body: For the longest time, I used to search, with a fine toothed-comb, the Success Stories section. I looked for posts about having women be attracted to me more after a long streak. I did this because I wanted reasurancre in regards to proving the miracle I thought NoFap was. I believed that if I abstained from PMO for a long enough time, women would be all over me. That it would fill some gap I was missing, whether it be confidence or something I didn't know. (NOTE: I am not morbidly disformed). One of my friends that I met on here had it even worse than me. He based his whole mindset on how many days he had abstained from PMO. He told me often: "I was only on day (x) so I failed. Maybe in a few days..." I've tried to tell him that mindset is negative to have, and that it's holding him back. He doesn't listen. This is why I made this post: The truth is that NoFap is only one piece of the self-improvement puzzle. Rebooting from any addiction is a great first step, and can help a person act, feel, and be much better than they were. However, don't get into the mindset that doing this one thing will solve all of your problems for you. Don't let this discourage you by any means; the shortest way from point A to B is a straight line. Going after a goal directly will yield much quicker results than waiting for superpowers to kick in. While NoFap is a great first step, it isn't everything. Conclusion: If you want to improve in an area of your life, don't wait for a miracle to occur. Wasting time in a bad mindset does nobody good. Kick yourself in the ass and go after what you want directly!
